Last night I ran out to my local thrift store to grab a suit 10 minutes before they closed. I knew I was going to be making a post on The Velvet Underground today, and it only felt fitting to publish a Whitey post on the same day.
Just hours after the passing of Lou Reed, Whitey composed and released a cover of Waves Of Fear, along with a story of the writing process and how much Reed means to him. His words are so incredibly real, raw and well-written, and the song is amazingly, beautifully haunting. I listened to Waves Of Fear multiple times every day for weeks after it was released.
Whitey’s cover blew me away. I deeply admire his honesty and how he chose to share it with the world.
Regarding my Whitey-inspired image, I had never worn a mens suit before, and found it pleasantly comfortable.
